Read Brave New World ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ia e de moral Contudo esse mundo uase irrespirável não deixa de gerar os seus anticorpos Bernard Marx o protagonista sente se descontente com ele em parte por ser fisicamente diferente dos restantes membros da sua casta Então numa espécie de reserva histórica em ue algumas pessoas continuam a viver de acordo com valores e regras do passado Bernard encontra um jovem ue irá. But I don t want comfort I want God I want poetry I want real danger I want freedom I want goodness I want sin These are words uttered in the face of tyranny and complete oppression though they are very rare words to be spoken or even thought of in this world because every human passion and sense of creativity is repressed and eradicated through a long and complex process of conditioningAnd that s what makes this novel so powerful it s not unbelievable Like Orwell s 1984 and Atwood s The Handmaid s Tale there s just enough truth within Brave New World for it to be real It s a cruel mirroring of our own existence should we follow a certain path too strongly And that s the wonder of speculative fiction though unlike the other two books there s no violence involved in Huxley s world It s just as controlling and scary but it s done in a indirect way Sex is on tap everybody should be happyPeople don t go missing in the night nor are they stoned to death by a group of their peers but they have just as little freedom even if they don t realise it In this dystopia they are trained from birth to think and feel in a certain way and for whatever reason should they ever deviate from their ordained path they are fed drugs that induce happiness and serenity thus the populace is kept within their desired space and persist with the tasks they were born to do Very few of them even consider that this is wrong this is all they have known And to make things even maniacally clever all physical and sexual needs are fulfilled completely as everybody belongs to everybody else in every sense with the ultimate goal of people never developing desire All desire should be fulfilled nobody wants for anything else People are machines and houses are factories They are mass produced and designed to be one thing and one thing only All values are inverted The idea of showing any emotion is horrific and repulsive Love is unknown and alien Death is associated with sweetness and relief Children are fed candy when they are thought about death so they associate the two together so when as adults they see death they think of treats rather than the loss of someone they have known and worked beside for years In Brave New World people are husks empty and detached without ever realising it John the savage as he enters the new worldI can only admire and praise Huxley s genius through the writing Like all effective dystopian societies reading and information plays an exceedingly important role As with Ray Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 all books have been destroyed and made inaccessible John one of the few characters who was born away from the new world stumbles across a volume of Shakespeare and it changes his life He can only think and feel in Shakespearean language and begins to view the world through a semi romantic lens and only finds depravity when he walks into the new world It s everything he hates He has been termed the savage though he knows and understands the real meaning of the term even if those who call him such do not Naturally he becomes depressed and isolated in this new space a space that he cannot be a part of or accepted in not that he would want to be And I found him by far the most interesting and compelling character within the story because he is the only one to really look beyond the boundaries of his own experience and to find it wanting So this is a terribly important novel and I can t believe I have only just read it If you haven t read it already you know what you have to do This isn t something to be missed It s a novel that made me think and imagine in a way a book hasn t done in uite some timeYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree Peeping Toms years In Brave New World people are husks empty and detached without

As a teenager I went through a period of reading a vast number of distopian novels probably all the teenage angst This is the one that has continued to haunt me however long after the my youthful cynicism has died it s death It s basically a book about the utopian ideal everyone s happy everyone has what they want and EVERYTHING is based on logical principles However there is something very rotten at the heart It s about how what we want isn t always what we should get It looks at how state sponsered happiness can entirely miss the point Perhaps most importantly it makes the case for individual freedom rather than authoritarian diktat It should be read hand in hand with Mill s Utilitarianism to get a good idea of the philosophy that inspired itIncidentally I gave this book to my boyfriend as a present for his 18th birthday a rather depressing gift I know At the time he wasn t particularly freaked out by it and said that it didn t hold the same level of dread as say 1984 or The Handmaid s Tale As he s got older however he s found the idea and frightening Six years later it has of a sting in the tail for him I don t know why this should be but I ll hazard a guess that as you get older you re idea of happiness becomes perhaps complex making the ideal of Brave New World even disturbing Imagine youthful cynicism has died it s death It s basically a book about the utopian ideal everyone s happy everyone has what they want and EVERYTHING is based on logical principles However there is something very rotten at the heart It s about how what we want isn t always what we should get It looks at how state sponsered happiness can entirely miss the point Perhaps most importantly it makes the case for individual freedom rather than authoritarian diktat It should be read hand in hand with Mill s Utilitarianism to get a good idea of the philosophy that inspired itIncidentally I gave this book to my boyfriend as a present for his 18th birthday a rather depressing gift I know At the time he wasn t particularly freaked out by it and said that it didn t hold the same level of dread as say 1984 or The Handmaid s Tale As he s got older however he s found the idea and frightening Six Peeping Toms years later it has of a sting in the tail for him I don t know why this should be but I ll hazard a guess that as Mary On Roller Skates you get older Shadows in the mist: Australian aboriginal myths in paintings (The Dreamtime series) you re idea of happiness becomes perhaps complex making the ideal of Brave New World even disturbing

review ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Aldous Huxley

Read Brave New World ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Publicado em 1932 Admirável Mundo Novo tornar se ia um dos mais extraordinários sucessos literários europeus das décadas seguintes O livro descreve uma sociedade futura em ue as pessoas seriam condicionadas em termos genéticos e psicológicos a fim de se conformarem com as regras sociais dominantes Tal sociedade dividir se ia em castas e desconheceria os conceitos de famíl. I need to parse my rating of this book into the good or great the bad and the very fugly because I thought aspects of it were inspired genius and parts of it were dreggy boring and living near the border of awful In the end the wowness and importance of the novel s ideas as well as the segments that I thoroughly enjoyed carried the book to a strong 35 star ratingTHE REALLY GOODEXCELLENT I loved the first third of the book in which the basic outline of the Brave New World and its devalued conveyer belt morality is set forth The narrative device employed by Huxley of having the Director of Hatchery and Conditioning provide a walking tour to students around the facility as a way to knowledge up the reader on the societal basics was perfect We learn of the cloningbirthing process the caste system and the fundamental tenets upon which the society is organized This was as good a use of infodumping exposition as I had come across in some time and I was impressed both with the content and delivery method The reader gets a crash course in world and its history in a way that fit nicely into the flow of the narrative without ever feeling forced This was easily the best part of the novel for me and Huxley s mass production based society of enforced hedonism and anti emotion was very compelling Sort of like Now long jumping to the end of the novelI also thought the final debate near the story s climax between John the savage and Mustapha Mond the World Controller was exceptional This last chapterending of the book while abrupt was masterful and struck the proper chord with the overall theme of the book Thus a superior 45 to 50 stars for this portion of the book THE BADAWFUL I thought the middle of the book including both the trip to the reservation and John s initial return to London was a sleeping pill and felt disconnected from the rest of the narrative Throughout this entire portion of the book all I kept thinking was The only purpose of this long longLONG section seems to be to allow the reader to see Bernard Marx do a complete 180 in his views on the society once he finds himself in the role of celebrity by virtue of his relationship with John the savage Sorry this just did not strike me as a big enough payoff for this dry plodding section It was a test of endurance to get through this portion of the book so I m being generous when I give it a weak 20 to 25 stars I could just have easily summed it up by just saying Bottom line I think this is a book that should be read It s important book and there is much brilliance here Plus it is short enough that the stale boring segments aren t too tortuous to get through However as far as the triumvirate of classic dystopian science fiction goes1984 is still the undisputed champ30 Stars Recommended
